The curtain falls. The theatre is plunged into darkness. Only a single light watches guard: the “Ghost Light.” The ghosts that inhabit the space are drawn toward the ghost light. As they recall the energy of a past life, they push each other around, push each other away, enjoy themselves, tear each other apart, only to fall into an embrace once again.
“Ghost Light: Between Fall and Flight” makes visible what is invisible. After ten years of working together on stages all over the world, Maxim Laurin and Ugo Dario lead us into a captivating performance that features a blend of stunning acrobatic feats, choreography, ghostly lights and up- beat music.
A reflection of the journey of a partnership, the teeterboard propels Max & Ugo toward each other in the euphoria of flight, the levity of weight- lessness, and the fatality of the inevitable fall.
Let yourself be moved by this story that touches the spirit beyond mere mortal words.
